Peterswell Presbytery is a rare gem. The presbytery, together with its adjacent two bedroom coach house, is being offered for sale by private treaty with McInerney auctioneers, Gort.
The presbytery was architecturally designed in the 1920s and has immense character. The house boasts many original period details such as encaustic tile flooring, bell ringing system, original brass pulley window openings, and marble fireplaces. The current owners have taken all this into consideration when carrying out the recent sympathetic renovation works. The house has been extended on the ground floor with a fabulous light catching sun room area off the kitchen, a concession to modern features that complement the old. The Iroko teak worktops and Namibian pearl granite on the breakfast island and the bright honed marble floor all come together to make this area in particular a welcoming and warm family area with open views across the hinterland and large rear gardens. The master bedroom offers impressive rear views and its en suite is spaciously equipped with an antique roll top bath, shower, and adjoining walk-in wardrobe. The new and the old blend together very well, resulting in a well cared for period house with all the modern day comforts you would expect.
The property is sited on 1.5 acres in total which includes a half acre plot with full planning for a 2,200sq ft two storey residence. This plot can be bought with or separate from the main house and coach house.
In addition the presbytery has a double entrance driveway which is perfect as the owners have let the coach house out after recent modernisation. The coach house is ideal for letting, or perhaps a teenager’s hideout or granny flat, office, studio, etc.
The Presbytery is located a short distance off the Gort – Loughrea road, four miles from Gort. It is enviably positioned within a 40 minute drive of Galway, Ennis, and Shannon, with Loughrea and the N6 motorway a 15 minute drive away. Trains are now running from Gort station to Galway, Ennis, Limerick, and Dublin.
The presbytery is a compelling mix of traditional and modern, town and country, but still retains the character of a period home on a manageable site with beautiful grounds and trees; this is a property sure to attract plenty of interest even in these troubled times.
The property is offered for sale at a reserve of €495,000 separate from the site with FPP. Inspections must be by appointment only with one day’s notice required.
